Chapter 7, Page 2, Book 21

The best way to cheer yourself up is to try and cheer somebody else up.

Mark Twain

July 2nd- make someone happy 

The unselfish effort to bring cheer to others will be the beginning of a happier life for ourselves.

Helen Keller

Sometimes the best way to cheer up is to help a friend.  We can’t help but be happy when trying to make someone happy.  Don’t wait for someone to make your day.  Make your own day brighter by cheering someone else up.

Use your smile to change the world.  Don’t let the world change your smile.  A little smile and lots of kindness is the best way I know to cheer someone up.  What we give we always get back.

An old proverb says that if you want happiness for a lifetime, help someone else.  It’s something we all can do and doesn’t cost a cent. We will all be happier together.

Those who bring sunshine into the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves.

James M. Barrie

I love how your messages often prompt song lyrics in my head, Ma. Here, I wasn't half-way through reading when I began humming Jimmy Durante's, "Make Someone Happy."

I used to make fun of the music my parents listened to, but now? I'm so glad to have been exposed to all those good tunes.

The best way to cheer yourself up is to try and cheer somebody else up.... YES, Mark was right. Good statements by you, good thoughts, that is for sure.
